Since you only have 8 days to coordinate everything, I think I would just stick with having 2 bridesmaids instead of 3.  It would still take time to either find FI’s sister a new dress that fits and matches well or alter your former MOH’s dress to fit her and it seems like you barely have enough time to do that. 

That’s just me though…I kept my schedule as clear as possible for the week before my wedding so that I could de-stress and spend some time with friends that were flying in from out of town.  I didn’t want to be dealing with last minute wedding issues.

First of all, I’m really sorry your Maid/Matron of Honor backed out on you at the last minute. I don’t know the story but you indicated that this is pretty hard on you. Personally, if a Bridesmaid or Best Man backed out on me at the last second, I would be pretty pissed, unless, of course, they had a good reason. So, I hope you are doing ok with it and things are not sticky between you two.

Now, as for your question: if you want FI’s sister in the wedding, then go ahead and ask her. If the seamstress can do the alterations in 3 days, that’s great! If not, you may want to start thinking of some alternative options for dresses. And if it has already been altered, a tea length would probably be ok since the girls dresses are a little different anyways.

Good luck and have fun at your wedding next week!

Honestly to keep you sane with your wedding being so close, I would stick to just 2 BMs.  But, a few days have passed now, so have you made any decisions regarding what you are going to do?
